Il Tempio Dell'Oro Olive Oil

Il Tempio Dell'Oro Olive Oil

Item # 83512
$45.00

The Il Tempio Dell'Oro estate is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Umbria, Italy. Its well-ventilated soil and terraced hillsides make for an ideal location for the precious olive tree. The resulting oil is deemed more valuable than gold!

This superb olive oil is a true work of art. Its unique character comes from the aromatic complexity of fresh grass, raw artichoke and bitter almond. Rich and smooth on the palate with a spicy note on the finish.

Incidentally, its delicate olive oils have been chosen by many great chefs. With only 300 bottles available in the US, savor every last drop!
